Are you
getting enough?

Sleep

You are super busy. Check?

You are trying to lose body fat. Check?

You are doing your HIIT workouts. Check?

Cooking from scratch?

Buying high quality food and locally sourced products?

YEP. YEP & Double YEP.

But talk to me about your sleep?

Its A MASSIVE component in your quest for
fatloss, health, energy & to STOP pesky cravings.

Good quality sleep can be one of the first
things to disappear when you’re stressed out,
but if you get more sleep, you’ll be happier,
healthier, and smarter.

If you sleep less than 7-9 hours a night,
you’re not firing on all cylinders.

You’ll find it harder to concentrate & remember stuff.

And….
Your body CRAVES carbs & sugar to keep you
propped up though the day.

You wake up tired & stressed
skyrocketing
your
cortisol & insulin (fat storing hormones)
levels before you have even
got out of bed!

My advice…?

Transform sleep into a spiritual practice.

Take it seriously.

Try to get as many hours between the sheets as possible.

There are a lot of ways to increase the satisfaction
of your sleep.

Ways To Hack Sleep

1: Turn OF everything electric, phones, stand by mode, EVERYTHING
has to be of. Electronic devices transmit
signals & your brain will pick up on these.

2: SLEEP in pitch black.
This is a hard one for me as I love to wake up
with the light streaming  in through my window

but recent bouts of intense
insomnia has put paid to this practice for me.

3: Leave a good 3 / 4 hours after eating

before you go to bed.
You really need to have all the food in your system digested well before
you retire for the night.

4:If you can’t stop your brain going

over ideas and conversations & events
etc then try & read fiction before you go to sleep.

5: Eliminate screen time an hour before bed,

so no looking at iPhones
ipads which keep the brain alert & active.

Have you used the SLEEP APP?

You put your phone on airplane

mode then under your sheets
or mattress and it measures your sleep patterns.

It’s really interesting.

Remember your body is resting, restoring, resetting
& repairing while asleep and if you are not getting the results you
want from you fat loss  programme
have a look at your sleep hygiene

It could be the missing link.

Have a wicked Wednesday
